Tekker Begdale had seen a ghost. Nobody believed him except Kit Huntley, and she did not want anybody else to know. Especially not Dan, her brother. Dan poured scorn on them – until one day he saw something which drew him into the mystery with terrifying results.
With Dan helpless on the verge of disaster, Kit and Tekker have to set out on a quest to save him before it is too late – a quest which is strangely beautiful, but also dangerous and frightening.
